In a little over a week, the premiere of BBC America’s ‘Orphan Black’ will lead the network’s Supernatural Saturday block. Fortunately, you don’t have to wait until then to see how the series will begin, because we have the first 3 minutes of the show for you to watch now!
The series centers on Sarah, (played by Tatiana Maslany) who assumes the identity of a desceased woman who looks exactly like her. Here’s the full synopsis of the series:
Sarah hopes that cleaning out a dead woman’s bank account will solve all her problems. Instead, they multiply at an unnerving rate. Smart, sexy, and pulsating with suspense – BBC America’s new original series “ORPHAN BLACK” features rising star Tatiana Maslany (The Vow, Picture Day). She portrays Sarah, an outsider and orphan whose life changes dramatically after witnessing the suicide of a woman, “Beth,” who looks just like her. Sarah takes her identity, her boyfriend, and her money.
But instead of solving her problems, the street-smart chameleon is thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery. She makes the dizzying discovery that she and the dead woman are clones… but are they the only ones? Sarah quickly finds herself caught in the middle of a deadly conspiracy, racing to find answers.
The clip below shows the first and last encounter between Sarah and her clone. It’s rather fleeting but the end result is rather shocking.
